Jumbo Granny Squares & Circle of Squares

Jumbo granny squares was one of my RSC blocks in 2021. I had pieced 4 lavender/purple blocks with the intention of making a crib quilt.

This was one of the crib quilts I quilted this month. My favorite block is the one I fussy cut the butterflies, they're so cute!

This quilt measures 41.4" square. The pattern for jumbo granny squares is here.


Another one of my 2021 RSC blocks was circle of squares. I thought I had counted exactly so I wouldn't have blocks left after I pieced the comforter tops. There were 4 blocks left so I made a baby quilt. I know I posted about sewing this little crib quilt together but I couldn't find the post. This quilt measures 40" square.


The pattern for circle of squares is here.

Two beautiful finishes! The butterflies are cute indeed, and so is the yellow flower on purple background. The quilting you chose suits both quilts very well.
Thank you for sharing your finishes, and linking up ;)

Two cute quilts. Love the butterflies. I too try to center fussy cut squares in blocks. They add so much joy to the quilt. Keeping count of RSC blocks is a challenge. I think I have 15 blocks left over from my Vitrine quilt of last year.

So great you had extra blocks to make a couple of babies happy! Both blocks are great scrap busters.

Congrats on two finishes, I'm still trying for one! I do love the granny squares, I'm trying not to start one of my own, but yours looks so nice.

Lovely baby quilts, Gretchen. I particularly love the second. How effective it looks using the same fabric of the sashing for the border. Love this idea.

Hello Gretchen,
I absolutely love the circle of squares quilt, and the colours look so pretty against the snowy background.
